Lockdown is a tough time for all of us, and people are itching to get out of quarantine. Every day we wait for more news that the government might be easing off on its lockdown rules.
This has people hoping to make the most of a post-lockdown world and party with friends and family. With that in mind, who wouldn’t want to use this time at home to plan the ultimate post-quarantine party?
If you’re looking for a way to ease your cabin fever, here are 6 tips to help you throw the best post-quarantine party, whether it be for your birthday, an anniversary, or just because:
1. Refine Your Guest List
When you throw a party, one of the first things you need to get right is to create the perfect guest list. This means you are going to need to focus on thinking about who you want to invite and who you feel would be the ideal party guests for your event. For this to be the ultimate celebration post-isolation, you’ll want to make sure your favorite people are in attendance!
2. Choose a Theme
The right theme can make all the difference when it comes to throwing the perfect party.
Try to pick a specific theme that you feel people will enjoy, and that you can make prominent throughout the event with decorations, food, and music. You can even take advantage of trendy online party supplies right now while some shops are still closed.
Whether it’s an at-the-beach themed party or an outdoors-inspired BBQ, there are plenty of ways to integrate your theme into your big bash. You might even add some irony and plan a quarantine theme—perhaps with a big mask-burning bonfire to celebrate!
3. Get the Right Decor
Shopping for and organizing the perfect decor also plays a big role in really making the party a hit. Consider whether the party will be indoors or outdoors and what setup you’ll need, including the chairs, tables, centerpieces, and food displays.

4. Visit Venues
Something you may need to think about if you’re not hosting your party at home is visiting venues to find one that is ideal for this momentous occasion.
While many venues are not currently doing in-person tours, through the convenience of technology you can get an equivalent experience. Marinaj Banquets & Events offers a unique virtual tour experience that you can use to find the perfect event venue for you!
5. Food and Drinks
Getting in touch with caterers is also essential when you are throwing a large party. There are lots of options available, so it’s a good idea to research what types of services vendors offer—such as setup and cleanup and safe food handling—to make sure you’re getting the most out of your investment. Or, if you’d rather, you can select a vendor who offers delivery services and do more of a casual buffet style food setup.
Another great idea is to go through the venue you’re hosting your party at, if you plan to throw your party outside of your own home. Many venues offer a range of catering options—from upscale meals to self-serve candy bars—as part of your venue package.
6. Design Invites
If you want to flex your creative muscles, you need to make sure that you think about designing and sending out invites for your big day. Try to think about the different designs that are going to work with your party and its theme and how you’ll send the invites out. Will they be mailed, or sent as e-vites? Considering the little details can help make sure you’re ready for when your big bash rolls around!
Now that you have several tips for throwing the ultimate post-quarantine party, you are fully equipped to deliver the celebration of a lifetime. If this period in time has taught us anything, it is the importance of making the most of life and connecting with those we love as much as possible. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get party planning!
